This large medal/pendant of Vercingetorix on one side and a rooster with "Gallia" on the reverse is from France and measures 35 mm or approximately 1 ⅜", not including the bale. Vercingetorix was a Gallic king and chieftain who united the ancient Gauls against the Romans, Julius Caesar, in particular. He was a member of the Celtic Arverni tribe, who inhabited what is now Auvergne in central France. They were one of the most powerful tribes during the third and second centuries B.C.
Gallia is the Latin name for Gaul, and the rooster is a symbol that has been used in France since WWI to represent their resistance and bravery against Russian forces.
Again, this pendant is large, measuring approximately 1 ⅜" or 35 mm, not including the bale. It is of an unknown metal and has no maker's mark or hallmark. There is some surface wear. Please examine the photos carefully and do let me know if you need more as I'll be happy to oblige.
Thank you for looking.
